Planning a party? How to choose the right tea
The job of a party planner can be a difficult one - getting the finest of details right can make or break an event.
As tea is one of the world's most popular drinks, it is often a popular choice to have at any party.
It is therefore up to the party planner to buy the right wholesale tea for the occasion to make sure it pleases the client and their guests.
Here are some ideas on how to select the best tea for the event, leaving everyone happy!
Loose leaf or tea bags?
One of the first decisions you will need to make is whether to purchase loose leaf tea or tea bags.
This will largely depend on the size of the event you are planning - wholesale tea merchants will often sell both, so it's up to you to decide.
Tea bags are usually the preferable choice for bigger events, not least because they are easy to use among large numbers of people and can disposed without too much hassle.
Loose leaf tea, on the other hand, is often considered to give a superior flavour - decide what is most important for your function and work from there.
Selecting the right variety
With so many different varieties of tea available, knowing which one to choose can be tough.
Black tea is the most universally popular - English breakfast and Earl Grey are crowd-pleasers and great options if you want to play it safe.
Alternatively, why not give party guests something to remember? Our range of blooming teas is sure to make an impression - the leaves are sewn together and come into flower when in contact with hot water.
Just make sure you have glass teapots to serve them in, otherwise the effect will be wasted!
